It will be a welterweight showdown during the 12th season of the "Ultimate Fighter" as champion Georges St. Pierre will take the reigns as coach for the first time ever and he will compete against the winner of Saturday night's fight between Josh Koscheck and Paul Daley.

The announcement was made on Friday by UFC president Dana White.

For all of the history of the "Ultimate Fighter" reality show it seems that UFC welterweight champion and arguably the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world Georges St. Pierre would have been a coach previously, but it never happened until now.

The popular Canadian fighter will head out to Las Vegas in the next few weeks to begin coaching the next cast of UFC hopefuls. Assured to be by St. Pierre's side are his head coach from Montreal, Firas Zahabi, and strength and conditioning coach Jonathan Chaimburg.

The other coaching vacancy will be filled on Saturday night when Josh Koscheck battles Paul Daley, and the win will not only mean a job coaching on the "Ultimate Fighter" but a shot at St. Pierre's title when the season is over.

Josh Koscheck, a participant in the historical first season of the "Ultimate Fighter", commented to MMAWeekly.com about the coaching position should he be offered the job.

"It definitely would be fun. I think it would be a great opportunity, and I would definitely take the UFC up on it," said Koscheck.

His opponent, British slugger Paul Daley, also said he'd welcome the chance to coach on the show, although both fighters stated emphatically that their first job is to win on Saturday night.

"If I get the opportunity, it's a great opportunity that I'd have to accept," said Daley. "I'd enjoy it, great exposure, and a chance to get my face out there a bit more."

Filming for the show is set to begin in about 3 weeks so following Saturday night's fights, the winner will take a little time to recover and then head out to Las Vegas to begin season 12 of the "Ultimate Fighter" alongside Georges St. Pierre.

Damn! I guess that means my buddy didn't make the show. It seems you can't get on anymore unless you train with big name guys.
